The course focuses on the economics content in the high school Economics and Personal Finance course and provides resources for teaching it to your students. Learn how the “economic way of thinking” turns basic economic concepts into life skills that enable students to make more informed decisions. Learning how market economies work and implications of economic indicators – inflation, unemployment and economic growth – also contributes to better decision-making as consumers, producers, savers, investors, employees and citizens. A broad analysis of economics as a whole engages participants to better understand world situations.

You  receive a Virtual Economics 5.0 flash drive with over 1400 lessons searchable by grade and concept (valued at $160) and other classroom resources.

The class is designed to require 7-9 hours/week over 6 weeks, with weekly reading and other assignments to be completed in order to receive a certificate of completion and VCEE Certification. Many assignments can be done ahead of schedule, but once a week posting on a discussion board or an experiment is required.

Teachers who successfully complete this course will earn recognition as a VCEE Certified Economics Educator: High School.
